As all the other reviewers have stated, this is a throwback to the 70s. However, the room was huge and clean. The king-sized bed was very comfortable. One of the jets didn't work in the jacuzzi tub and none were very powerful, so it was nothing special. My parents stayed in the room next to us and had a fireplace in their room. I kind of liked the atmosphere!
The staff was very helpful. I loved the outdoor balcony overlooking the brook! It's away from the hustle and bustle of the main attractions, which we liked. There is a trolly/bus that stops right in front of the office which will take you practically anywhere you want to go and saves you the money on parking. Would have been nice to have wi-fi or even high speed internet in the room.
Breakfast was nothing to brag about, but it was enough to get us on the road.
